NextIssue App Review
Anyone who reads my blog regularly knows how much I hate waste. I’ve written about how to cut down on the amount of paper junk mail coming to your house (read about PaperKarma here) and how recycling can support domestic violence safe houses (read here). So when I saw an opportunity to review an app that lets me read my favorite magazines, cut down on the paper sent to my home and save me money… how do you say no? And so I said yes.
Next Issue is like Netflix for magazines. With just one monthly price, you can get access to more than 90 magazines on your iPad, Windows or Android tablet. And yes, they have cool magazines — not issues of Quilters Quarterly. What really caught my eye is they offer People magazine. I’m not a big celebrity gossip kind of gal, but I loves me my People magazine!
If you subscribe to People’s independent online subscription, you’ll know that there are lots of extra “freebies” associated with each issue, such as additional photos, videos and panoramic pictures. I was curious if NextIssue would just be a photocopy of the regular People issue or would it have all of the whistles and bells. And guess what? It has all of the whistles and bells.
For example, there was a spread about Harry Connick Jr.’s house. The magazine photo is adorable; but the online version has a panoramic view. Check it out:
Some of the magazines NextIssue offers that personally caught my eye:
Now if you’ll excuse me, I found a couple of articles I’m looking forward to reading:
Parents (Party Like It’s Summer Camp!)
Oprah (The O List)
Eating Well (It’s Pizza, It’s Salad, It’s Pizz’alad)
